Levi’s Original Trucker Denim Jacket in All Mine Review
It’s been a little while since I bought this denim jacket from Levi’s, but I’m finally getting to my review of it! I went through a phase of trying to find the most perfect light blue denim jacket, and I went through lots of different brands, including GAP and Allsaints etc, but I finally settled on this Levi’s original one! It came out to be perfect and I’ve worn it lots already, so check out my review!
Fit/Cut – This Levi’s Original Trucker Denim Jacket in All Mine has their classic fit, which is a tailored and fitted denim jacket that hits just above your hips, with full length sleeves. You can see from the modelled photos how it fits on me, and I’m 5ft 4″ for reference. The sleeve length is pretty much perfect and that’s important on denim jackets as regularly they come with a longer length and you have to fold/cuff them, which doesn’t look as good. It’s fitted across the shoulders, as you can see the seams are hitting in the right spot, and I feel like it nips in at the waist ever so slightly, to mould to the female body shape.
Sizing – I went with a size XS in this Levi’s denim jacket. I ordered the small as well, but it was just too big, so I settled on the XS. It fits pretty perfectly actually, as it’s not too tight or too big, and there’s room to move around in it, so it’s extremely comfortable. I’ve always noticed that Levi’s denim jackets tend to run on the bigger side, compared to other brands, so if you are between sizes and want a classic fit, go with the smaller one, or order both if you can! Of course if you prefer a slightly looser fit, stick with your bigger size. For reference, I am a UK 8 in jackets, or a US 4.
Denim/Wash – This wash is called ‘All Mine’ and it’s one of their classics! I’ve seen it available for a long while now, and it still is, even though I purchased this jacket back in September 2020! I know, I got it so long ago and I’m only just getting to reviewing it now! It’s a stunning blue though, it’s light enough to look vintage and washed/broken in, but it’s got darker areas so you can really see the blue. As you all know, I’m extremely picky when it comes to my washes, and I can’t fault this one! It’s perfect for the look I was going for, and extremely versatile! The denim blend is 79% Cotton and 21% Tencel, so it has some softness to the denim, but no stretch.
Details – For those of you who are familiar with Levi’s denim jackets, you will know that they always come with the brand’s iconic red tab logo on the left breast pocket. I love this detail and always find it so cute, and stylish. Other than that, there’s no details that stand out. There’s 2 breast pockets with buttons, there’s 2 standard pockets on the sides, it has a silver button closure, and buttons on the cuffs etc., it’s a very standard, classic denim jacket design. Minimal to the core and I love that!
Pricing – Now there are discrepancies with pricing when it comes to the UK and US price tags. I paid £100 for this denim jacket as I live in the UK, but it retails for only $99 on the US website, and is currently in the sale for only $68.60, so it’s much cheaper to buy it from the US. For some reason we always have a higher price tag as Levi’s is considered more premium over here.
Overall Opinion – I’m sure you can see from my review that I love this Levi’s denim jacket in All Mine! It’s truly a gorgeous jacket! I would recommend ordering a few of the same jacket in your size, just because there are inconsistencies within brands, so some XS’s can fit a little differently to each other, and some have better washes etc., but if you’re a denim head like me, you already know this! I adore the fit, the comfort, the wash… Everything about it! I would maybe prefer the sleeves to be slightly more tapered, but I don’t know how much that would take away from the comfort and being able to wear a thin sweater underneath etc., so I rate this jacket a solid 9.5/10! I love it!
